The Union Thugs That Monied Obama Into Office Plan A Tea Party Takedown

In October of 2008 I wrote about Patriot Majority and their peripheral groups and individuals being a front for unions to pour money into Obama's election.

ACORN, Bankers & Now Union Dupes, Patriot Majority For Obama

Well, they're back. Last time they characterized a radical as mainstream in hopes of lining their pockets after he was elected. This time they want to characterize the views of middle class Americans as radical because these "radicals" just might stop their gravy train from fully enriching them in trade for their full support.

These groups hope to become the shadow government.

Daily Kos & Political Polls As Propagandic Politics

via Ann Althouse

This type of poll is at least two layered in that it plants ideas in the polled persons minds and when the desired result is obtained the poll can then be used a propaganda by the person paying for the poll.

Ann Althouse delves into the veracity of the poll. That is good to do because the Kos poll results are crap. Kos know it, the media knows it and any thinking person knows it, but many will report it as fact. For Kos, a master of media manipulation, it is a win-win. Some will believe while others will be driven to Kos' site.

Poll: Republicans Think Obama Is A Socialist, And Palin More Qualified To Be President

• 39% of Republicans want President Obama to be impeached.

• 63% think Obama is a socialist.

• Only 42% believe Obama was born in the United States.

• 21% think ACORN stole the 2008 election -- that is, that Obama didn't actually win it, and isn't legitimately the president, with 55% saying they are "not sure." This number is actually significantly lower than it was in a similar question from Public Policy Polling (D) back in November, which said that 52% of Republicans thought ACORN stole it. So does this mean Obama is gaining ground among Republicans? As it is, only just over 20% of Republicans will say that Obama actually won the election.

• 53% think Sarah Palin is more qualified than Obama to be president.

• 23% want to secede from the United States.

• 73% think gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools. This position puts the GOP base well to the right of none other than Ronald Reagan, who helped defeat the Briggs Initiative, a 1978 referendum in California that would have forbidden gays or people who advocated gay rights from teaching in public schools.

• 31% want contraception to be outlawed.

I wonder if among those polled by Kos there is a probability of 78% who are po'd at being had or if that 78% is snickering at foisting another lie onto the public. Kos gets how this works and is still expecting a governmental post somewhere. May I suggest at the Ministry of Propaganda.

Canadian Leader Shuns Canadian Health Care

Canadian Premier COMES TO USA for surgery...

Where will Canadians go for quality health care after ObamaCare becomes law? Probably where ever our Congress ends up going, but it won't be here.
